COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
While the legend of Mad Tom is laden with mystery and intrigue, one thing remains clear: Mad Tom did things his own way. Twice as Mad Tom is an aggressively twice-dry-hopped Imperial India Pale Ale, that delivers a definitive hop aroma & unabashedly big bold flavour. We brew this beer with the road less traveled in mind, and in the spirit of old Mad Tom...we make no bones about it.

Fantastic IPA. Balanced and strong. Solid ibu's that don't over power the malt. Alcohol is round out by the citrus. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

tderoeck (6491) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2015
17/VIII/15 - 12Fl. Oz. bottle from a trade @ home - BB: 7/VI/15 (2015-1096) Thanks to cards04 for the trade!

Note: whoops, didn’t see the bottle printing of the date when I got this one. Had I known, would’ve drunk it immediately, though I did save them in the fridge all this time. Another claim for brewers to put dates on bottles more clearly, if even at all.

Clear orange beer, aery irregular yellowish head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, marzipan, alcohol, fruity, sugary. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet start, citrus touch, bitter, malty, marzipan, fruity. Aftertaste: very bitter, some mango, citrus, bit oxidized, malty.

On tap at MacGregor’s for Phil’s last week. Sweet and spicy aroma with caramel and citrus and pine. Clear orange amber under a white cover. Caramel malt with some resinous pine and faint citrus. Medium body, moderate carbonation with a lightly bitter finish.

jb (2539) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2015
I prefer Tom when he’s mad but not double mad. A bit too much Tom. Booze not well hidden in nose or taste. Absolutely no subtlety going on here. Grainy. Clear dark gold.

ElManana (1144) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2015
Bottle at tderoeck’s place. Smells almost like a barley wine, very sweet, malt, not an inviting smell. Taste is better than I was expecting, but it’s in no way on earth an IPA. Very sweet, malty, caramel character. However, not bad!

adamnowek (730) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2015
Big and bitter taste. Really nice floral aroma. Hazy orange in appearance with a thin head.

HKdIPA (469) - HONG KONG - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle from LCBO in Ottawa on last morning. Clear amber orange pour. Aroma is orange and ginger hops. Nice. Taste follows - lots of malts. Big boozy bitter finish. Nice.

Simonm223 (6) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015 does not count
A very good strong IPA. Lots of evergreen notes, somewhat akin to drinking a pine tree. But if you like that sort of thing it’ll work; and 8.4% ABV you can afford to drink it slowly.

A good double IPA with the strong hop flavour with nice pine and citrus notes

Deux fois houblonnée à froid? Oui monsieur. Ça se faire sentir dans les arômes d’ananas et de malts qui rappellent la ferme. Jolies rondeur pour accompagner le tranchant de l’amertume.

(Thanks Cody) - Alors là, wow! Superbe IPA, toute en puissance. L’amertume dans le tapis, pas trop fruitée, sur un lit de caramel non sucré, avec l’alcool qui se montre humble malgré son volume. Je préfère les trucs plus «tropicaux», mais celle-ci, dans son genre, est tout à fait réussie.
